Broadway Bound (Again)
Less than a week to go before our “Off to Broadway” production in Grade 1 and I’m at my wits end here. Compared to last year, I seem to have started much earlier for this year’s preparations. But still – somehow – I’m barely hanging.
I guess it’s the rehearsals that are getting to me. Less than two weeks to teach new songs to two groups of pupils (ranging from 6 to 7 yr olds) for their performances is like going on a specops mission… you’re not sure how it’ll turn out but definitely hoping for the best possible outcome amidst forces you can’t control.
Anyway, November 25, 2016 is D Day. So I’ll just have to wing it and keep my fingers crossed.
Just to keep me inspired, I’m sharing some photos of last year’s “Broadway Bound” Production.
